After the two victories over Iran in its first two preparation matches -88-61 in Valencia and 96-53 in Madrid-, the National Team travels to Malaga this Tuesday, where it will coincide with the Women’s National Team and on Thursday it will face France.
It will do so with 16 players, once Sebas Saiz and Sergi Martínez have left the concentration, meeting the deadlines established by Sergio Scariolo at the beginning of the concentration, gradually reducing the initial group of 18 players with whom the concentration began .
For Martínez this has been his first experience with the National Team, in which Sebas already had an outstanding participation in the dispute of the qualifying ‘windows’ for the World Cup.
Scariolo: “Sebas and Sergi are important members of this group”
The coach explained that “We continue with the preparation and we have to accelerate the selection of the players, with more urgency than usual due to COVID protocols and the Olympic Committee.” And he had words of gratitude to the two players who left the concentration: “I want to thank Sebas and Sergi for this week of work. They have confirmed to us that they are important members in the future of this group. Not only have they helped train very well, with intensity and freshness, with a good spirit, but they have also shown that they can play and are very interesting players for the future ”.
